Mickey and the Seal (1948)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

One of the better Mickey Mouse shorts has him at a zoo where he feeds a seal who decides to sneak home with him. Back at the house Pluto notices the seal and starts to go crazy, which gets him kicked out of the house. Soon afterwards Mickey decides to take a bath, which leads to his own encounter with the slippery seal. MICKEY AND THE SEAL is certainly one of the highlights of the entire series thanks in large part to Mickey never being more charming and a seal that is downright lovable. What's so great about this film is that the two are just a terrific comic duo and this is never more true than in the sequence where Mickey is trying to take a bath and doesn't realize the seal is in there with him.
